OBITUARY Print

Betty J. (Carr) Marino, 89, of Scranton, died Friday in Allied Skilled Nursing Facility. She was the wife of the late Michael Marino, Ed.D., who passed away in January. The couple was married since May 16, 1953.

Born Feb. 18, 1932 in Lisbon, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Merrill and the late Helena (Sloan) Carr.

Betty earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Scranton and worked as an occupational rehab counselor. After retirement, Betty and Michael decided to open their home in Ogdensburg as a bed and breakfast, called the Professor’s Place.

She was an avid collector of antiques, from furniture, to glassware, to dishes. She was a ferocious reader, especially murder mysteries. She loved entertaining and meeting new people. She had an easy sense of humor and always challenged her loved ones to do their best. Of all of her accomplishments, she was the proudest of her family.

Surviving are three sons, Michael Jon (Kim) of Central Square, N.Y., Steve (Nancie) of Scranton, and Paul Marino (Barbara Shadle) of Lansdale; two daughters, Mary Jo Devereaux of Clarks Summit and Anne Clark of East Fairfield, Vt.; grandchildren, Liza, Joshua, Kaitlin, Dominick, Brynn, Ryan, Thomas, Alex, Eric and Quinn; great-grandchildren, Jack, Gage, Jason, Neko, and Cameron.

She was preceded in death by her younger brother, Burton; and cousin, who was her best friend, Lorna Mae Webb.

A private cremation will take place at Jennings-Calvey Funeral and Cremation Services Inc., at their on-site crematory, 111 Colburn Ave., Clarks Summit, PA 18411.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Scranton Rescue Mission Food Pantry, 8 W. Olive St., Scranton, PA 18509.

I am very sorry to hear the passing of Mrs. Marino. Both Mr. and Mrs. Marino were kind enough to let us play basketball adjacent to their garage. I send my deepest condolences.
